This auction is for a large two ounce starter culture of micro worms. Widely cultured and used as a first/second food for fry of many
species of freshwater tropical fish. These is a healthy, sizable culture that is used to start mother cultures that are ready to feed in short order.
The micro worm (Panagrellus redivivus) is the larger of the three nematodes commonly used in the hobby as first and second live foods and is on a par with newly hatched baby brine shrimp in terms of vital nutrients and protein, but is much easier to culture and maintain. The ropes on the lid of the culture below are composed of micro worms waiting to be wiped off with a fingertip or knife blade and swished into a tank of hungry fry.
These nematode worms thrive in a simple culture medium of oatmeal enriched with a small sprinkle of active baker's yeast - supplied with your starter. Room temperature up to about 85 F is acceptable, and within days of starting your cultures with our large starter portion the surface of your cultures will shimmer with worms. With minimal care there will ALWAYS be enough worms on hand for all the fry you can produce. The white areas on the sides of the culture below are many thousands of nematode worms.
You also get three of my 7ml feeding pipettes
These heavy duty - and most importantly wide barreled - six inch long pipettes are graduated in 1/2 ml increments up the 3ml stem and hold a total of 7ml. They have multiple uses in any fish room or breeding setup. They are handy for dispensing medications, transferring fry and eggs (just snip the tip wider with a pair of scissors), delivering small foods right to the fry that need them without spreading them all over the tank, and a whole host of other applications.
First Class mail shipping anywhere in the US/Puerto Rico is an affordable $3.20 - This item is not available outside the US/Puerto Rico.

Thanks for your interest in my cultures!
